Farmer’s Market Bounty

And a lot of it!  Now that it’s almost winter I will so miss farm fresh produce like this.  Are these different types of tomatoes or just picked at various stages; anyone know?  Photo taken in Copley Square,  Boston.

    What a beautiful photograph!! Even though I am happy we’ve had a little sweater weather around here, this makes me yearn for the summer. –Lisa

    I miss the farmers markets also…till next season! Looks like these are various heirloom varieties of tomatoes. Yumm!

    Both, milady… There are what looks like three, maybe four types of tomatoes, (hard to see the ones in the back of the photo…), and all were picked at various times in their particular state of growth, as they’ll all ripen at different speeds, on or off the vine…

    • Thank you for sharing this. As I’ve said to others, my tomato knowledge is rudimentary at best 🙂

        That’s okay, I’m a flower dunce, myself, and my drawings are big time sucky…. But, I WAS a chef, before I stopped working, so, I have a pretty good handle on tomatoes… 🙂 We all have our areas of expertise, and I love sharing mine…

  6. Yep, they’re all [mostly-] ripe, just different varieties and yes, as dhp said, mostly heirlooms. The number of tomato varieties available keeps increasing exponentially, but the value of the ‘heirloom’ or old-breed types is that they haven’t been hybridized for shipping convenience and long shelf life, a process that almost inevitably kills the natural intensity of flavor, so you’re often more likely to get a really delicious and deeply flavored tomato if you choose one of the odder looking ones! Beautiful and potentially more exciting to look at, too, than plain red toms.

  7. Oh shucks…just give me a bottle of hot sauce and a few of those tomatoes and I’ll be happier than a pig in slop!!

  8. awh… I love herloom tomatoes! Love making tomatoe sandwiches, just sliced tomatoe, a little mayo, salt and pepper! Nice picture, reminds me of all the autumn colors. The farmers market is always fin to visit, I always spend too much.
